Having problems with your HP Pavilion A820n (PP165AA) PC Desktop ?
The shut off buttom will not work.
\015 On my HP Pavilion a820n, when I select Start, Shut Off does not work. I can shut the computer off by using Task Manager, but it takes 7 or 8 minutes to do so. Last November I installed a new gateway router for my DSL line because I purchased a wireless laptop. After that both computers were working fine. A month after that I installed a USB wireless adapter in the desktop, but it slowed everything down so much I disconnected the wireless adapter and decided I really don't need wireless on it. After that it was all working fine except for the shut-down problem. I am a woman in my eighties who can usually fix ordinary problems that come up on the computer, but doesn't understand a lot of the new things connected with wireless networks. I hope you can come up with a solution.\015
